Abstract

Reliable Computing (2006) 12: 403–404 c Springer 2006 DOI: 10.1007/s11155-006-9010-9 This special issue is the first of a three part series that focuses on emerging tech- nologies for reliable engineering analysis and design. The papers represent selected contributions to the National Science Foundation workshop on Reliable Engi- neering Computing held September 2004 at the Center for Reliable Engineering Computing, Georgia Tech Savannah. One of the main objectives of engineering practice is to achieve reliable and robust designs. However, the quality and reliability of the design tools plays a main role in achieving this objective. Design tools include mathematical models, algorithms, and numerical methods for analysis, optimization, and system simula- tion.
